Is anyone planning on going to the group meeting today?
It's a  1/2 hour ride for me and I don't want to go if no one else is going?

Saturday knit/spin recap

Shelley Reid
 

This one’s for you, Lucinda! :)

We had a nice little group at the farm: Pat, Joan, Kay, Charlene, and Susan. Charlene and I were spinning, the rest knit. And Carol brought Maisie, either to buy veggies or to see the farm animals. Possibly both. Maisie showed off her knowledge of animal sounds, admired the picture of the “woof” (doggie) in a picture on the wall, and was fascinated by the spinning wheel. 

I brought in my Electric Eel Nano spinning wheel, which is teeny tiny and therefore highly portable. The website for those interested in learning more is here. I will just mention that this is one of those tools that has a specific role, in this case to be tiny and portable and reasonably quiet. They are brand new and therefore there is a lot of tweaking that new owners have been doing to iron out the kinks, such as sanding a seam from the injection molds to reduce friction, using various lubricants or teflon tape on the plastic, adjusting the brake band setup and rotating the flyer arms… and the take-up is very, very light. You aren’t gonna spin your next sweater on this baby (2-oz. Bobbins also). But it’s fun. 



We also talked about kids, college, careers, travel, cable plying, Rhinebeck workshops and volunteering, the Rhinebeck tote bags, and much, much more. We also had one of those great experiences where someone talked about a challenge in her life and, through talking it out with the group, came up with new insights into the challenge and new ideas in how to approach it. I love that about our group. 

Everybody have a great week and a happy Labor Day,

Shelley



Re: Saturday knit/spin recap

Shelley, great update thank you for that. Also, please send me the info about the wheel you have.  If you want to send it to me directly my email ischarlene_vargas@...

Thanks, Shelley!  It sounds like a perfect day - I'm so sorry I missed it.  We're headed back and I will definitely be at the next meeting.

This sounds like exactly the reason I love the group so much.  Your Electric Eel sounds like great fun!  I hope I see it at the September 7 meeting.

I've missed everyone - see you soon!

Spinning at the Grange this year.

Teresa Ambrose
 

Hello Dollies,

I sent this email out a week ago and not a peep. I think I must have sent it to the wrong email address because surely someone would have answered! So I am resending it making sure it is going out to the proper email address. 

Let me know what you think. 

Hi Spinners!

I have been contacted by Rudy Spadaro, (a neighbor who has been involved in the Grange fair since he was young). Rudy coordinates the tractor parade and displays his tractors and now he is on the board. When Rudy was a boy he lived with Silvia Thorne a longtime Croton Heights resident and avid spinner and weaver. He helped Silvia transport her wheel and etc. to the fair every year where she would spin in the Grange building. Rudy was the one who asked me to bring our spinners to the Grange and was very upset that we weren’t returning although he understood. 

At the last Grange meeting Rudy asked that we be asked to return and given better accommodations. The Grange committee agreed and want us to spin in the main Grange building near where the knitting is displayed which is where Silvia Thorne and her group spun. There is better parking there and easy access for bringing in wheels. Also if it rains there will be no wash outs and since it’s a building with a floor instead of a tent with grass it will be much more comfortable. 

As tempted as I am to come back for this I am in Maine and won’t be home until November. 

Is there any interest in this? I know we reached new members this way and I for one had fun teaching people to use drop spindles though teaching is not mandatory. They want us there to demonstrate spinning. 

Maybe someone can create a poll? 

Let me know if anyone is interested in Spinning at the Grange this year.

With you in spirit,
Teresa

Hi Teresa, I might be interested but I have a couple of questions, where and will this take place?

Re: Spinning at the Grange this year.

Shelley Reid
 

The Grange Fair is not far from downtown Yorktown Heights, and the dates are the weekend following Labor Day. 

My remaining concern is that last time we did spin there, Grange folk were disappointed we did not cover a larger span of time (one afternoon instead of two, a couple of hours instead of a longer part of the day). Essentially we had 5 or 6 people total spinning, and we all wanted to be together for a couple of hours the one afternoon. Breaking it up into shifts to cover both days for more than a couple of hours would leave spinners either alone or in groups of maybe 2. That can get a little lonely, and I wouldn’t want to leave my wheel unguarded (small children, tiny fingers)  if I wanted to get food, use the restroom etc.

Re: Spinning at the Grange this year.

Carol Fessler
 

If I’m around I would be glad to do it but I agree wholeheartedly with Shelley.  Maybe we can get a group of 3-6 spinners to come for one 3 hour stretch of time one day only.  It can go on the fair schedule as a discrete, not ongoing, event.

It’s really nice that they want us back and want to accommodate us.

Carol

Hello Dollies,

I sent this email out a week ago and not a peep. I think I must have sent it to the wrong email address because surely someone would have answered! So I am resending it making sure it is going out to the proper email address. 

Let me know what you think. 

Hi Spinners!

I have been contacted by Rudy Spadaro, (a neighbor who has been involved in the Grange fair since he was young). Rudy coordinates the tractor parade and displays his tractors and now he is on the board. When Rudy was a boy he lived with Silvia Thorne a longtime Croton Heights resident and avid spinner and weaver. He helped Silvia transport her wheel and etc. to the fair every year where she would spin in the Grange building. Rudy was the one who asked me to bring our spinners to the Grange and was very upset that we weren’t returning although he understood. 

At the last Grange meeting Rudy asked that we be asked to return and given better accommodations. The Grange committee agreed and want us to spin in the main Grange building near where the knitting is displayed which is where Silvia Thorne and her group spun. There is better parking there and easy access for bringing in wheels. Also if it rains there will be no wash outs and since it’s a building with a floor instead of a tent with grass it will be much more comfortable. 

As tempted as I am to come back for this I am in Maine and won’t be home until November. 

Is there any interest in this? I know we reached new members this way and I for one had fun teaching people to use drop spindles though teaching is not mandatory. They want us there to demonstrate spinning. 

Maybe someone can create a poll? 

Let me know if anyone is interested in Spinning at the Grange this year.

With you in spirit,
Teresa
